Answer:

A biome is defined by its biogeography, temperature, and precipitation; thus biomes are distinguished from one another by differences in biogeography, temperature, and precipitation.

Explanation:

A biome is defined by its biogeography, temperature, and precipitation; thus biomes are distinguished from one another by differences in biogeography, temperature, and precipitation.

Biogeography refers to how species and ecosystems are distributed in space. Thus, a biome is distinguished from other biomes not only by temperature and precipitation, but also by the evolutionary history of the organisms inhabiting it.

The organisms inhabiting a particular biome are determined in large part due to the temperature and precipitation of the area. The plants and animals found in a specific biome will be adapted to it.
